Greyscale’s Artistic Director, Selma Dimitrijevic, shares her dramaturgical practice in this workshop for early to mid-career artists. Focusing on the transition from small to mid-scale productions, the workshop explores the role of the dramaturg and how they contribute to the development of the script and the production overall. The workshop will develop your skills in interrogation of narrative, character, and intent, and it will help you to build confidence in working with writers and directors.

The workshop will be BSL interpreted and a notetaker will be making a record of the workshop to be shared with participants. If you have any access requirements please contact Chloe at [email protected].
